Heard a lot about this beer, and as a fan of hefe weizens, I am anxious to give this brew a try. Pours a dark brown, like rye bread, and hazy like a hefe. Smell is thick with the wheat yeast and a great aroma of plums, chocolate and a hint of grapes. Taste is unbelievable, like the best hefes. Plums, pears and other dark fruit hit your moth hard and the yeast follows up with a welcome peppery bite before a wheaty-oat bread aftertaste leaves you with a nice dry finish. Alcohol isn't overly noticeable but does a nice job of warming as it goes down.
Not quite as refreshing as a hefe, and I don't have a lot of weizenbocks to compare this to, but this is a world class brew.

Poured from a 1 pint .9 oz bottle into a a tulip glass. Now the most interesting part is not what came out if the bottle but what stayed in it. At some point I had stored the bottle on its side in a wine fridge (for 3 months after buying it) and found an exorbitant amount of yeast stuck to the side of the bottle. Now to me this is a good thing keeping natural unfiltered flavor with the brew especially the Bavarian style. Unlike any other beer this was a cloudy chocolate brown color. There was large amount of white head when poured violently from the bottle. Hints of chocolate malt taste similar to the color. Has the sweetness that accompanies bocks but also the breast wheat vibe. Has a good balance between wheat and malt with an elevated abv of 8.2% which is barely noticeable to the pAlate.
Don't think I've had a beer of this style before. It seems like American craft brewers would have their work cut out for them with this style.
